Italy and the US: Cultural Comparison 03/07/17

Before I came abroad, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect of Italy or even Europe in general. With European heritage and hearing about my Grandma’s childhood and parent’s visits, I just came to the assumption that it was an older version of the United States. After spending 7 weeks here and traveling to 6 […]

When in Rome: 5 Tips for Visiting Italy’s Liveliest City 02/13/17

Buonasera! (Thanks to our Survival Italian class, I’ve expanded my limited Italian vocabulary). So this past weekend I spent two days in one of the most historic cities in Italy: Rome. Despite this title, I’m not going to tell you a love story about a woman that takes coins out of the Fontana de Amore […]

Tabacchi 2 – The Place For You: Exploring Paderno del Grappa 02/09/17

After finally getting settled into my new life in Paderno del Grappa I have been able to learn the ropes around the town. When I first started my research on CIMBA, I couldn’t find much information on the town and the types of stores Paderno del Grappa has. The one store I have come to […]

Going to Class, Company Tours, and Everything in Between: Final Reflections on Study Abroad 06/30/16

“Life is so much easier when you just chill out.” – Unknown. When I signed up for my study abroad experience here in Italy, I knew that I would have my eyes opened to a new culture, experience new things, and overall grow as a person. However, I never imagined that I would see so […]

How to be a Tourist without Behaving like a Tourist 05/25/16

I get it. It is almost impossible to not stick out as a foreigner when traveling within a different country. Our clothes don’t match, our dialect sounds strange, and our behavior, in general, simply does not line up. Hiding in your dorm room is not the solution to avoiding this reality. You can go out, […]

Traveling Mindfully: Five Breaths 04/25/16

One of the more emphasized, overarching lessons of the CIMBA program is learning how to be more mindful or aware of the current moment you are in. There were a great many ways to incorporate this into travel, but I chose to concentrate on a single breath in each new place I visited. Cataloging an […]

“Touristing”: The Art of Sightseeing 02/12/16

Three cities in four days. That about sums up my first extended travel weekend. Going into it, I knew I would be running (literally) off espresso and it all worked out because I had the most amazing weekend. I wouldn’t recommend this busy travel tactic to all but I wouldn’t discourage it either. These three […]

Thinking of tasting amazing new Italian creations? Take a trip to southern Italy.

When you think of Italy what is the first thing that pops into your head? For […]
